Egypt air operates a monopoly from Hurghada to Cairo so am not sure you would be able to avoid it. The check in staff and security were pleasant but as soon as I got on the plan I started taking notes of the service. There was no greeting from flight attendants. They literally ignored the people getting on the plane....

Not sure why they have first class on these smaller regional jets. They just move the curtain back and there is no one in the middle seat. That was about it, the legroom was non existent; which for an hour flight i was OK with the lack of room. The plane needed a little TLC... the knob for the vents...

I will never fly with EgyptAir. Rude staff, nasty food, uncomfortable seats and they also stole my baby monitor. I recommend to fly with another airline because you wouldn't want people talking down to you.

My original connecting flight with Air France was cancelled and they booked me on a flight with EgyptAir and I can say I was very disappointed. I had paid for a premium offering through AF and this flight only had economy and business class but was pretty much all booked. I was given a seat in row 33 but not...

Egyptair needs to exert some effort in adding some treats and luxury to their flights. While this flight had entertainment system (which is pretty unusual) they didn't distribute headphones! On another note, i selected the seats online to be close to my kids, when i checked in they said that the craft was changed and the seat selection was lost....

Good service once again on Egyptair from Cairo to London. Flight left on time and arrived on time. Seats reasonably comfortable in Economy - I had an over-wing window seat. Good in-flight meal and entertainment facilities (not that I use the latter much). Friendly staff and good value for money. Helpful tip: Cairo airport terminal could be a wee bit...

With regular travel it is easy to get stuck in always booking with the 'regular' airlines. This was the case with a recent business trip to Egypt. The 'regular' airlines would take me from South Africa, via Europe, to Egypt. Although not a bad routing, the option was there to take Egyptair, for a more direct routing, and a business...

Tour group we booked with organised business class seating. Would not bother on this short flight of just on an hour. There was no separate business class queue for the first security check and x-ray of bags, which is before you even get to the Check-in/bagdrop. Once through this there was a separate business checkin/bagdrop - one of the few...

Boeing 737/800 with large business class section and economy from aisle 20 to 30 with 3 by 3 configuration. Boarding orderly - by business, children etc and then by rows. Pulled back on time. Cabin service OK. Choice of hot meal either beef or chicken with small salad, bread roll and tiramisu. Tea or coffee and one serving of drinks...
